Statement from Brundall Parish Council Chairman – Land East of the Brundall Memorial Hall – Quantum Land Planning Appeal
Appeal Ref: APP/K2610/W/19/3239986
A Statement from Brundall Parish Council Chairman, Kevin Wilkins:
As you have seen, we have been informed today of the Planning Inspector’s decision to allow the QL appeal regarding development on land East of the Memorial Hall.
This is a hugely disappointing outcome for the village and our community. However, this is now a binding decision by the Planning Inspectorate to allow planning permission for the site. In my view, there is nothing further that we, as a Parish Council, nor members of Brundall Future and the local community, could have done to oppose the application at Broadland Planning Committee or the Appeal Hearing. I have been greatly impressed with the energy and determination which has been put in to preparing representations at the various stages of the planning process by the community and I repeat my thanks to Sharon, as Parish Clerk, for all the effort she has put into preparing the material for the Parish Council to present throughout the process. We could not have reasonably done any more as a community to oppose the application.
Putting aside my disappointment with the decision, we now need to move forward as a Parish Council and village community. We do now have the certainty that this piece of land will be developed, and although the Section 106 agreement has yet to be finalized, we are expecting land to be gifted of 3ha for formal / informal recreational use, and a further 7ha alongside the Witton Run. This will provide a green corridor from Berryfields to Cremer’s Meadow. Funding will be linked to both pieces of recreational land for initial development and some ongoing maintenance.
There will be considerable further work and discussion to develop options for the land to enhance our current (very limited) recreational provision in the village. We must ensure that the recreational provision on Land East of the Memorial Hall is complementary to the Sports Hub and our other provision. Now that we have clarity regarding the future of Land East we can move forward and the difficult ‘what if’ scenarios we have been trying to work with for the past few years have finally become certainties.
The outcome of the appeal will resonate through the village and we may be asked what further action can be taken to oppose the development. In my understanding, there is nothing further that can be done following the Planning Inspectorate’s decision and the potential for a judicial review is very unlikely to be supported or succeed.
Therefore, I believe that as a Parish Council and village community we now need to move forward and deliver the very best recreational opportunities we can with both the Sports Hub and on the land we expect to be gifted as part of the QL development.

Joint Statement concerning arrangements for Remembrance Sunday:
As a result of the widespread disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the special measures which have been put in place to slow its spread, it is not possible to hold the annual Remembrance Sunday Service in St Laurence Church this year.
However, Brundall Parish Council, together with The Yare Valley Churches, believe it is important that we enable the community to have the opportunity to join in remembrance for all those who, over the years, have sacrificed their lives so that we may know freedom.
On the 8th November at 10:50am, Rev’d Peter Leech will lead a short Remembrance Day service at the Shard (Brundall Cemetery).
The service will include a 2 minute silence and the laying of wreaths by representatives of community organizations. It is proposed that the service is also live-streamed to enable others to join in from home. Please find Brundall Parish Council’s Facebook page for the link on the day. We strongly recommend that people watch the service from home. If you are attending please only attend with one other person from your home. Groups of more than two are not permitted.
All those attending will be asked to sanitize their hands on entering and leaving the site and to observe social distancing. A full risk assessment shall be carried out prior to the service in line with the Government recommendations and NHS Test and Trace requirements will also be met. Anyone who is showing symptoms of COVID-19 is asked not to attend in person this year.
On the 11th November at 10:55am, prayers and an act of remembrance will also take place at the Shard (Brundall Cemetery). The arrangements will be as per the 8th November service.
Did you know that you have two District Councillors and that each of them has a personal fund of £500 from Broadland District Council which they can allocate to good causes within this ward?
There are certain Terms and Conditions attached and the main ones are as follows:
Grants must be between £50 – £500
They are usually made to a group rather than to an individual
These grants cannot be made retrospectively
They must not be used for routine maintenance work
Funding could not easily be found elsewhere
The group must not have received member-led funding in the past two years.
Last year some of the donations across Broadland went to Older Persons’ groups, Scouts, Guides, Brownies and Rainbows, and one Under 7s football team who bought Touchline Shelters.
If you belong to a group who might appreciate extra help from your District Council as outlined above, or alternatively, if you think you would like to create a new group from scratch and need a small injection of cash to get you started, this may well be the place to try.
If you think we can help, please get in touch with Cllr Grant Nurden, Cllr Sue Prutton or the Clerk at the Parish Council Office.
